1630: Close UK stocks ended the week on a sour note, dragged lower by concerns surrounding Ukraine and Russia, together with falling copper prices and a dearth of company releases from the City's biggest players. In UK macro news, the median expectation for inflation over the coming year in the UK fell to 2.8 per cent in February from 3.6 per cent in November, according to a BoE attitudes survey. Meanwhile, the US non-farm payrolls report showed jobs increased by 175,000 in February, compared with a revised 129,000 a month earlier, surprising analysts who had predicted 150,000. The jobless rate increased to 6.7 per cent from 6.6 per cent although this largely reflected a rise in the labour force. The top tier index closed down 75.82 points on the day, and 97.03 on the week, at 6,712.67.
